Besides price and gauge of the steel, what differentiates the 'residential' from 'industrial' versions? Anything that prevents the downhill dive? Knowing that they do that, how do the companies avoid law suits? Or the retailers?
Weight and build quality, I have used those smaller homeowner zero turns, they are not the greatest they have a very poor weight balance. Fill the rear tires with liquid that will help a fair amount. The machines basically don't have enough weight to keep them planted.
